I was given this clock at age 5 in 1963. And it worked until it was lost when I moved in 2003. When you wind it the clock plays a nice song.My clock was durable and stood the test of time. it did go a little slower in the last few years. I ws distraught over loosing it. While I gave this toy 5 stars because of my clock. I am disappointed in the new models. They are made out of cheap plastic and the colors are ugly. The new Fisher Price musical teaching clocks pale in comparison to the older models. They are still a good teaching tool. SO yes they still get the job done. And I will use this clock to help my 4 year old grandson be prepared for Kindergarten. But the new clocks will never replace my old clock in my heart.I kept it so long I have no idea how it got lost when we v. But over all Fisher Price products have withstood the test of time while other toy companies have faded into the woodwork. This clock is a good way to teach numbers and help a child tell time. I used mine to sing along with the grandfather clock song, but I learned to tell time with it also. I remember moving the hands back and forth trying to guess what time it was. So I still recommend this teaching toy even though it is made out of cheap plastic.
